Dog Rescued From Hot Car In Burlington

This latest heat wave has people checking parked cars for any signs of someone being left behind in a hot vehicle and one man learned that a world cup match is probably not worth leaving his dog in the car when he was hit with $500 worth of charges. Fortunately, the animal in question was rescued by police before it came to harm.



The temperature in the vehicle the animal was rescued from at the time police removed the animal was recorded as being at 66C. That is 150F. The police say the dog was only in the car for 20 minutes before they arrived and that was all it took for such temperatures to be reached.



If you have anyone or any living thing in a vehicle with you there is no amount of time that is safe to leave them in weather like we are experiencing. Without air conditioning and water, they will be in danger from the heat. Air flow is not enough to help with such high humidity.
